Bonita Springs woman accused of making false 911 call

A Bonita Springs woman who was mad at her boyfriend is accused of making a false report to 911 that he was threatening her with a gun.

Around 10:45 p.m., Julie Rocha-Garcia called the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and said her boyfriend had a gun. When deputies arrived to the home, which was on the 267000 block of Lost Woods Circle, the boyfriend and a neighbor walked down the driveway with their hands in the air, according to an arrest report.

The two men were checked for weapons, but neither had a gun, reports stated. Deputies then began questioning Rocha-Garcia, who said she called 911 about a firearm “to get you here faster because he is an (expletive),” according to reports.

When asked if “deputies had risked their lives and the lives of the public to reach her in an expedited manner,” Rocha-Garcia demurred, according to the report.

The boyfriend later told deputies he and Rocha-Garcia were fighting about her drinking when she placed the 911 call. According to the boyfriend, she told him to “watch this,” then made the call while flipping him her middle finger.

Rocha-Garcia, 38, faces a misdemeanor charge of misuse of the 911 system.
